    manti teo to the raiders!

    Te’o would be great if he’s still there when we pick. Not sure Reggie is the type to move up to get someone that high.

    Does Reggie trade Dmac for a 2nd round pick? Might as well as he’s not a ZBS type back. Let’s at least get something for him. <2.0 ypc is NOT cutting it.

    Tomorrows game should be tape and send to them as a Special Christmas gift for their family .
    Can’t wait until next year! Heads will roll.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Most SEC star players struggle once the get to the pro’s I wonder why that is? Trent Richardson is doing pretty well I think Julio Jones is doing OK.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I would be VERY suprised if we could get a 2nd for Darren, heck even a 3rd rounder would suprise me.

    RB’s just aren’t valued that high, especially ones with years and injuries accrued on them, in the NFL.

    Marshall Faulk was fresh off a 2,000 yard from scrimmage season, was always healthy, and a frequent Pro Bowler, and get traded for a ………2nd round pick.

    Darren is no Marshall Faulk.

    I bet the market would be a 2012 4th rounder, and a conditional 2013 pick depending on playing time, production, etc.

  • eastoaklandraider

    you can get a lb in the middle rounds, we need Oline that should be the first pick, the center from ALA Barret something.

    West Virginia might have the worst defense I ever seen.

    ===========================

    I guess you haven’t seen Raider defense?

    42-28 Aints

    I’ll be hammered by half time!

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    man we need new players across the board. FORD Should be traded. DMAC should be traded. We need a new TE.. maybe trade Rolando for a 7th.. but nobody wants that contract.

    Trade kelly or cut him

  • omoran

    Suggestion Box Anyone – I think if we disolve half of the Team
    And bring half of the new guys from the draft or trades or free Agency we will be half as bad!
    Math baby Math!

    I don’t know why fans think DMAC has low trade value. We traded Philip Buchanon for a 2nd and Doug Jolley for a 1st.
    DMAC is still young, and I’m sure there are a few teams who think DMAC can be a great RB in their system. The issue with him is durability which will hurt his trade value. I say 2nd-3rd.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I think a team like the cowboys or jets would love to have DMAC. maybe even the PATS

  • Priesttj12

    Excuse me but from what I can remember Michael Bush rushed for almost 1,000 yards here and 7 TD’s yet people keep bringing up his stats for another team. Eventhough Bush is their short yardage back. Something fans just don’t understand is a shortyardage back will always average less YPC than the featured back.

    To quote his stats as evidence of what he would have done here is just flat out ignorant. How do you know what he would do here rather than there? How do you know how they would have used him?

    All I know is that whne he was here he was higly productive. You can say all you want about how much money we had or otherwise the truth is we didn’t want him bad enough if we did he would still be here.

    Bush not being here is REGGIE’S choice and to spin it any other way is to absolve Reggie of his role in it………period

    Reggie could’ve told Bush listen I wnat you here and what will it take? He didn’t do that because he didn’t feel he needed him. Neither did all of you who are coming upo with these lame ass excuses. You all thought we could replace him EASY as you put it.

    Welll dammit I’m still waiting for the replacement. Thanks for listening…

  • lefty12

    You can ignore the facts all you want but Bush didn’t want to be here,PERIOD.Well,the haters want to vent and I’m not into it so…………

    DMac would be a great acquisition for the NY Giants – a power blocking team. We’d get a 2nd from them.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Why would u sign BUSH for the contract when DMAC cant even get 2 yards. DMAC was our short yardage back

    yeah u can get a linebacker in the 7th too. but not manti teo. his influence on the defense would be unbelievable.

    he is a franchise qb for the defense.

    Bush maybe wanted to be with a playoff team.

  • 504 Raider

    I’m superstitious: So no way I would want Chip Kelly as our Head Coach.

    He has no neck. Just like Fat Monkey.

  • 504 Raider

    Bush would avg 1.2 yds per carry in our offense this year. And Pryor would be our starting QB after the Jax’ville game. Palmer would’ve been killed and Leinart would have been out by halftime of the next game.

    Raiders prove next-in-line doesn’t apply

    Vic Tafur

    Published 8:57 p.m., Saturday, November 17, 2012

    People loved and hated former Raiders coach Hue Jackson, but my biggest criticism had nothing to do with his overstated style.

    Jackson kept Kyle Boller as the backup quarterback last season even though he had no faith in him. When starter Jason Campbell went down with a broken clavicle in Week 7, Jackson panicked and Oakland traded a first- and second-round pick for Carson Palmer.

    Palmer has been good, but even his mom would admit that’s a steep price tag for a quarterback coming off semi-retirement who will be 33 next month.

    Two weeks ago, the Raiders lost running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson to high ankle sprains. Taiwan Jones would appear to be next in line, but the coaching staff has no faith in the second-year speedster.

    Jones had two carries for 6 yards last week, and fullback Marcel Reece started at tailback and had five carries for 11 yards in the first half, when the game was still in doubt. He finished with 13 carries for 48 yards, and promoted practice-squader Jeremy Stewart had seven for 22 yards.

    Jones, the fastest player at the 2011 NFL combine, has problems holding on to the ball. Forget about after contact, we’re talking about handoffs in practice.

    Which begs the question, why don’t the Raiders pick up an experienced free agent running back like Steve Slaton, Joseph Addai, Ryan Torrain or Ryan Grant?

    “No, because it’s that time of year where there’s not a ton of guys that you really want to cut somebody for to bring in,” Palmer said.

    Really? The Raiders are 3-6 with bad depth.

    They would rather go with Reece, who was a receiver in college. He is a big-time playmaker at fullback but has very little experience at finding and hitting holes as a tailback. This preseason would have been a nice time for that, but this idea was not on the team’s radar – Reece didn’t carry the ball in those four games.

    And then he had one – a botched reverse – in the first seven games before McFadden and Goodson got hurt.

    I’m not saying Jones is the answer. I just don’t get how when the No. 1 and No. 2 running backs get hurt, the No. 3 guy – and he still is – doesn’t get the ball.

    I dont care who is in the national championship.

    Im more concerned who the Raiders are gonna draft. They gonna need all the help they can get.

    Trade FORD.. Draft AUSTIN from West Virginia.

    THe guy is a football player. Ford is just a track guy who gets injured

    ^^^^^^^^
    Agreed. Trade Ford for a 3rd rounder and try and draft Austin from WV.

    The kid is dynamic!

  • mcfadden20.

    Thank god Oregon lost, now some certain posters would stfu about wanting chip Kelly as a coach

  • mcfadden20.

    Nobody is going to trade for ford, we gonna have to let him go

  • DKnight007

    They won’t let Ford go. Some team would trade for Ford at the end of the season.

    If Davis, McK and DA want to truly rebuild, than just trade DMC and Ford and get as many picks as possible and hope they do the right things in the draft.

    I do have confidence in McK’s drafting ability at least.

    ———————————-
    Just out of curiosity, what gives you confidence in McK’s drafting ability? He drafted a good LB, but most of his other picks haven’t even seen a snap this year. I get that he had only 6 or 7 picks, but still, it isn’t anything amazing to build total confidence in.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Definitely trade McFadden.

    Keep Goodson, and Taiwan Jones.

    Stewart, see how he goes between now and end of season, either cut or keep on the cheap.

    Keep Ford. He would be an excellent full-time punt and kick returner, he has the proof in the pudding, and this particular facet has been god-awful for years when he hasn’t been doing and others have.

    Seymour, Kelly, gotta go. Keep Bryant, Crawford, Bilukidi.

    Trade Branch, cut Giordano. Depending how Mitchell goes this and/or remaining weeks, keep or cut.

    Huff leave at CB. Keep Bartell and Spencer if they stay healthy, on the minimum. Keep Chekwa.

    Get rid of Tollefson and Carter, they’re stop-gaps.

    Trade Briesel.

    Get rid of Carlisle, W.Smith, and other scrub depth OL.

    Keep Veldheer, Wisniewski, Bergstrom, Barksdale.

    Keep all three TEs.

    Get rid of Leinart if/when Pryor gets it enough to be a #2.

    Keep Moore, DHB, Streater, Criner. Get rid of Hagan. Especially as Streater will eventually beat him out for the Split-End role behind DHB. Moore and Criner the Flankers.

    Re-sign Wheeler. Keep Burris. Get rid of McClain, Goethal. Keep some of the scrub LBs for Special Teams.

    Move predominantly to a 3-4 and invest in the draft, FA, and trades…

    ILB, OLB, NT, OL, CB, SS, FS, RB (in the main), and add a depth project QB.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Oh and Reece keep. Schmitt get rid of.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Also, trade Shaughnessy.

    So all up on the trade block..

    McFadden
    Branch
    Briesel
    Shaughnessy
    McClain (whatever you can get)
    Seymour/Kelly (whatever you can get if still under contract)

    Maybe out of that you can get…

    Conditional 2nd/3rd out of DMC and Branch
    Briesel maybe a 5th to some ZBS needy team
    Shaughnessy 4th/5th
    Seymour/Kelly 7ths
    McClain conditional 7th

  • LondonAl

    We must run the ball today and move the chains. If we don’t then CP will have to throw all day. We might score three TD’s or more but with Brees on the field so much (due to lack of a running game on our part) then the Saints can put up as many points on the board as they need. C’mon OL and RB’s give us a running this season!

    We are gonna get punished today. I’ll never give up hope of our Raiders beooming great again. Hopefully, we will draft UCLA Joseph Fauria next April. We need to draft at least ten players; Reggie needs to hire a totally new coaching staff or upgrade a couple coaches. Enjoy the game today Raider Nation, regardless of outcome.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Keep Ford. He would be an excellent full-time punt and kick returner, he has the proof in the pudding, and this particular facet has been god-awful for years when he hasn’t been doing and others have.

    Ford hasn’t returned any punts, and kickoffs are being phased out of the NFL.
